    I really doubt Hali and Cromartie are available where you have them slated, but I'll take them...I'm not a fan of the Whitworth pick, as I don't believe he'll fit a zone scheme, but other than that, good picks...

    Cromartie has barely played a season of football since he was in High School. Could he be a 2nd round pick? Sure. Will he be? Certainly not definite.

    Between myself and the Penn State fan I run our site with we both agreed Tamba is a late 1st/early 2nd round prospect. Strong at the POA, plays under control and has a variety of ways to get to the QB, but lacks ideal speed or athleticism. Watch him and you can easily see his lack of COD ability. Nearly needs to come to complete stops when changing direction. This is from watching at least 20 games of Hali on my own over the years. We'll see his times at his ProDay coming up soon. If they're what I expect them to be, it's likely he could be around for the Texans.

    Whitworth looked very good this season, then terrible at the Shrine Game and then great at the combine. Very confusing. If you can find me a Tackle you think would be better for Kubiak's system in the 3rd round I'll give you two cookies.:) While I agree he isn't ideal, not alot of guys in that range. He ran well and showed good mobility in position drills in Indy.

    It is true that Cromartie doesn't have a lot of starting experience and is coming off of a major injury, but he has an amazing size/speed ratio (6-2, 4.41), and he's very good in coverage...It's hard for me to believe that a guy like Stanford Routt is worth an early 2nd, but Cromartie isn't...

    As for Hali, I honestly doubt he'll be a 12 sack per year guy, but he is the best LE in the draft (depending on your views owhere Super Mario will play in the NFL)...I could see a team like Denver, Philly, Atlanta, or KC investing a first in Hali...If he's there at 33, I'm all for taking him, providing there isn't a superior OL on the board there...

    Whitworth is probably the best fit for a zone scheme out of the OTs you have going in the 3rd, but that doesn't mean he's a good fit...It simply means that he is better than the alternative...If we were going to go OL here, I'd throw a vote in for Setterstrom then hope for Eslinger in the 4th...Our interior OL is of more concern to me than our tackles are...

    i like a good few of the picks but theres a few other that dont make much sense to me- philly taking another DT- i think they'll go WR in the first
    KC will def. go CB especially after yesterday
    Why is cedric griffin rated so high and isee the bears taking lewis or pope(and cromartie is a sure-fire first rounder to me- ran a 4.39 at the combine 6'2, showed he was nearly over his injury, showed he was able to cover well before his injury)

    I dunno.......but I'm thinking this was like the most accurate mock of them
    all last year in being the predictor of the first round picks on Draft Day ? So
    if they say the Penn State DE is still on the Board in the second round, I'm
    hopeful that's the reality in this Aprils Draft. Of course, maybe they know something about his downside that the rest of us don't ?

    I wonder.......... it's not only this mock, but mock's from all the most watched mocks, the more credible mocks have us taking a RB in the first round.... then in the second something like this mock(a DE) and not addressing the OLine till the third or later rounds........

    Is this "We need to address this OLine" thing a figment of our imagination?? Is it just something we "talk" about on message boards or what??

    I'm very interested in how you have Ko Simpson falling that far and us not taking him. I was just wondering out of curiosity. Do you believe other DB's passed him up or team needs have changed? Thats quite a drop actually for him, but I wouldn't complain if he fell to #33. I just want to know your reasoning please.

    Ah yes, Philadelphia taking another DT. Thank you for bringing my team up so I can have some fun...:)

    Hollis Thomas is a goner in Philadelphia. First, he hasn't had a sack since 2000. That's a bad sign in a 1gap scheme. Two, I happen to know his family personally. He's wanted out for some time now.

    Paul Grasmanis will very likely be cut as well.

    That leaves Mike Patterson, Darwin Walker who has underacheived for years since signing an extension and a rotational backup in Sam Rayburn.

    Philly will certainly look DT very, very early. You have to understand Andy Reid and Tom Heckert's draft philosophy. Core positions. QB, DL, OL, DB. They value those guys over any other at all costs.

    I'd say it's more then likely they'll go DL in the 1st round.

    They could go after Santonio Holmes to play X receiver, but from all I've heard from our sources they'll look to address the position in free agency.

    A little bit of both probably. My top picks for you guys at that spot were Eric Winston, Ko Simpson, Darryl Tapp and Tamba Hali.

    We went BPA and gave Houston Hali. I could see an OT as well obviously, but I wouldn't take a lesser rated player just because my team needed it.

    I wouldn't pass on Reggie Bush, BUT if Houston could trade down and still land Ferguson it would obviously be a great selection.

    I have D'Brickashaw as my 2nd rated player in the draft actually.

    I go back and forth on Ko Simpson. Personally, I wouldn't take him over guys like Donte Whitner and Daniel Bullocks, however as I see Bullocks as a SS in most schemes he wouldn't fit into the equation here.

    One thing to keep in mind is that Safety is NOT the most sought after position in the draft. Guys like Gibril Wilson, Adrian Wilson and Madieu Williams are some of the best young Safeties in the NFL and were not 1st round picks.

    Brian Dawkins is the best FS in the NFL in my opinion and was a very late 2nd rounder. Rodney Harrison was a 5th rounder.

    I could see Ko going higher, but that's where we have him as of now. Again, we focus on drafting BPA rather then by need.

    Thanks for the kind words.:)

    I love Tamba Hali. Great kid. Tough kid. Great motor. Hell of a football player. The concern with Tamba comes back to his athleticism as I mentioned. He's a guy we spent alot of extra time watching for an Eagle's target in the 1st round and came away with concerns on his COD, speed and burst.

    Think he'll be a productive player, but there are concerns.

    As we get closer to the draft I'll have a better idea.

    As always, I'll obviously post our final mock right before the draft. We're usually pretty accurate.

    I'm good with Reggie in the first, and am all over Cromatrie in the third. Its the 2nd round and second third I have issues with.

    For the 2nd rounder I'd take teh following before Hali:
    DeMeco Ryans, OLB Alabama
    Kamerion Wimbley, DE Florida State
    Thomas Howard, OLB UTEP
    Darnell Bing, SS USC
    Ashton Youboty, CB Ohio State
    Eric Winston, OT Miami
    Darryl Tapp, DE VaTech
    Donte Whitner, S Ohio State
    Maurice Stovall, WR Notre Dame
    Daniel Bullocks, S Nebraska
    Ko Simpson, FS South Carolina
    Charles Spencer, OG Pittsburgh
    Jonathan Scott, OT Texas
    Alan Zemaitis, CB Penn State
    Daryn Colledge, OT Boise State
    Sinorice Moss, WR Miami
    Leonard Pope, TE Georgia
    Rocky McIntosh, OLB Miami
    Jonathan Joseph, CB South Carolina
    Derek Hagan, WR Arizona State
    Davin Joseph, OG Oklahoma

    As for the second third:

    Dominique Byrd, TE USC
    Gabe Watson, DT Michigan - would be a steal here
    Abdul Hodge, MLB Iowa
    Richard Marshall, CB Fresno State
    Parys Haralson, DE Tennessee
    Mark Anderson, DE Alabama
    Kai Parham, ILB Virginia
    Stanley McClover, DE Auburn
    Taitusi Lutui, OG USC
    DeMario Minter, CB Georgia
    Ryan O'Callaghan, OT California
    Mark Setterstrom, OG Minnesota
    Joel Klopftenstein, TE Colorado
    Elvis Dumervil, DE Louisville
    David Pittman, CB Northwestern State
    Pat Watkins, FS Florida State
    Devin Hester, ATH Miami
    Jahmile Addae, FS WVU

    Lots of good value in the third round of this mock, so much that if it really breaks this way I'd like to see the Texans trade up for another pick in the third.

    Greg Blue in the second, and ahead of Leonard Pope. Wow. I guess the Cincinatti GM is trying to get fired.

    I like the picks. I'm still hoping we take Young and take this franchise in another direction offensively, but sans that I'd take this draft right now. Hali has a bit of a William Fuller feel to him. Not ideal sized, but a high motor, uses leverage well plays with great urgency, and explodes to the QB in space. He would instantly be our best pass rusher. The 3rd round is too good to be true.

    So, you're under the thought process that the Bengals should pass up a SS to draft two TEs in a row with Marcedes Lewis and Leonard Pope?:rolleyes:

    Like your Mock draft, well thought out @ addressing team needs. :thumbup

    concerning Whitworth its a good selection, one I'm not going to agrue with. I will however add (since I've made my HoustonTexans Mock draft selection) Kevin Boothe to the discussion. I'm really impressed with his upside & intelligence and Boothe is ready to start @ LG now and in the future could be a starting RT for a good run zone blocking scheme. Its so hard to gauge how high his ceiling will be given the level of competition he faced but an intriquing prospect none the less. :)

    I've never heard anything about Jonathan McCargo, yet you have him in the second round. Did he really just escape everyone's sight?

    really good mock

    i don't like the whitworth pick though, i don't think he fits the zone blocking scheme very well, eslinger would be a better pick there in my opinion.
